We were surprised to find the tea room open and quite busy on a wet December Wednesday. We just had very welcome hot drinks but the food looked fab and the staff were super friendly

Great place for a cup of tea and a roll \ sandwich. Even better when sitting outside overlooking the loch. The ice-cream isn't bad either.

We have visited this little tearoom on our previous visit to knoydart. And this time, I think we ate there 3 times! Twice for lunch, and once for breakfast, with our little vegan friend who they also cater for! It's such a cosy little tea room and the food is delicious. The staff are really welcoming and lovely to chat... More

We ate here a couple of times, once was just snacks and as we had our dog we sat round the front with a lovely view over Loch Nevis, unfortunately the rains came down and we scurried away to eat our food at our accommodation. The day we left Knoydart we had our breakfast here and very nice it was... More

This a great little place, and really fills the gap in the town when the pub is closed. The staff were friendly and happy to help, and the evening menu had a good variety of options. The food was all cooked to order and thoroughly enjoyable.

Friendly place with great atmosphere. Good wholesome food and good value for money. The staff were really welcoming and the meal was well prepared and well presented. Well worth a visit! They are not Licensed but happy if you 'byob'. During peak times they get busy so it's worth booking to avoid being disappointed.

The Pottery and Tearoom is a "must visit" port-of-call to Knoydart visitors and is now along with the Village Hall, Inverie's social hub. Food is homemade, wholesome and excellent and the staff are helpful and friendly. The evening meals, especially the Lamb Shank with Couscous, are to be recommended and there is always a good vegetarian choice on offer. Now... More

We ate here on two nights. Food was great, and the service was really great. After a longer day walking than planned we walked past at about nine, when I'm sure the staff were starting to wind down from a very busy evening service. But they were incredibly welcoming and kept the kitchen going long enough to rustle us up... More

Our group has been here before and has emptied the place of all edibles, this time we were much more refined and received excellent home baked cakes, scones, the baguette I had was stuffed with prawns, the only downside was I had to sit out in the rain and midges with my Bernese Mountain Dog as the kitchen is part...

Much better than the famous Old Forge. The tearoom serves more than decent lunches (panini with haggis and cheese was great) and the deck offers great views at the bay. Small kitchen with a friendly young staff.
